TOW THE LINE front cover image

In Tow the Line, you’ll journey into a world where justice teeters on the edge, and alliances are forged in the most improbable of circumstances.

Gwin, a seasoned investigator grappling with Intermittent Explosive Disorder, now finds herself on the run. In a twist of fate, she discovers an unexpected ally in Paxton, a twitchy, glitchy mechanic on the spectrum, weary of being misunderstood. Together, they embark on a daring plan to confront the injustices they’ve endured, navigating a perilous landscape where truth is elusive and consequences are unyielding.

As they don the guise of law enforcement, a peculiar bond emerges between captor and captive, blurring the boundaries between friend and foe. With each stride towards their objective, the layers peel back to unveil the enigmatic events of those lost months.

Tow the Line is an enthralling saga of resilience, redemption, and the extraordinary connection between two souls entwined by fate. Join Gwin and Paxton on an odyssey where the quest for justice unveils the complexities of human nature and the potency of improbable alliances.


Gwin Apollo is a humanitarian at heart—a selfless giver who relishes in practicing random acts of kindness. She also has a penchant for justice and an unwavering vendetta against cheating men, leading her down a sinister path. Due to her Intermittent Explosive Disorder, Gwin is prone to uncontrollable periods of rage that are often directed at these cheaters and abusive assailants. Gwin’s husband, Eddie Apollo, knows Gwin has gone too far when she admits to murder. He loves her but knows she needs to turn herself in. Reluctantly, she acquiesces and makes a phone call to the police with her confession. That’s when things get dicey.

Front Cover image for Everything I Ever Wanted

Everything I Ever Wanted is about a man who has achieved everything he ever wanted, but now, he can’t even remember his own name. I put myself in the hot seat of this story to really challenge myself to understand dementia since it runs unbridled in our family genes. I spend a lot of time with dementia patients. So many brilliant and accomplished people that just no longer remember who they are. 

This is a book about trust, and it takes place in the near future. I wake up in a hospital bed, in the year 2027, my head all bandaged and I can’t remember anything about myself. Strangers that claim to know me, say I was in a car crash and have amnesia. But I’m pretty sure I just fell again, and my family is making up the car crash story to explain why they’ve taken my car away. I do get to meet a wonderful cast of characters, claiming to be my siblings, my children, my grandchildren, my wife, and even a couple of ex-wives. I’m told I’m a lucky man. I feel more like a confused child. I’m at their mercy.

Bobbys Cabin Author Rick IncorviaRick, Jamie and Bobby were the best of buds. Now well into middle age, they enjoy frequent getaways into the mountains, leaving wives and responsibilities back home. A typical weekend at Bobby’s cabin might include long days of cutting and hauling firewood, landscaping or carpentry but always concluded with a big meal, target shooting, and a sunset viewed from the hot tub. Evenings were filled with poker, plenty of drinking and boisterous fun. However, recent break-ins during the many weeks the cabin was left unattended had Bobby angry, frustrated and on high alert. He suspected a sketchy character with a mangled hand who lived just a few miles through the woods. Despite the local cops’ warnings not to do anything stupid, Bobby had his own ideas about how to police his 50-acre slice of heaven. When an unintentional murder turns into a cover-up, the escalating pressure unmasks psychotic paranoia, and best friends battle over loyalties and right versus wrong. Suddenly, it’s every man for himself.


Watch the video of Rick's revealing synopsis

Imagine for a moment that you could be sent back in time to witness the life of any historical figure. The Traveler’s Best Seller is a fiction novel about a humble school teacher who gets just that opportunity. Having already suffered great loss, and now facing a terminal cancer diagnosis, he embraces a bizarre “travel” opportunity offered by an unorthodox trio who seem unusually interested in fulfilling his dying wishes. It begins as a very human struggle with his fate, and plunges the reader deeper into an odyssey of heart and soul as he surrenders to the adventures, eagerly returning to his classroom to share his newfound knowledge with his increasingly engaged students.  This book is a reminder to live your life without fear or the limitations and insecurities brought on by worrying about what others think. It will change how you feel about dying and dreaming, about your purpose, and about love and living in the here and now. This is a must read for teachers, students, and anyone facing mortality issues through cancer or the untimely loss of a loved one.


Adam, a successful young real estate investor, spends nearly two months in a coma after surviving a motorcycle accident. During his deep state of unconsciousness, Adam dreams up a whole new life – new friends, new clients, a hot new girlfriend. Adam does not wake just because it’s morning. As a matter of fact, if it wasn’t for his sister Julie waking him daily, he wouldn’t wake up at all.


When I'm Gone cover imageIn this frolicking, adult “Alice in Wonderland” adventure, Robert attempts to communicate with his grieving wife from the afterlife. He stumbles upon the ability to enter the body of Murphy, their 8-year-old family boxer. The experience is overwhelming, but the challenge to communicate with Maria proves to be more difficult than expected. When he learns that he can change into almost anything, he is torn between his transformational experience, and being a loyal guardian to his wife.


When Hoyt, a brilliant biochemist goes missing, his wife suspects foul play. However, their recent history of domestic quarrels leaves the police less than convinced that he didn’t just abandon her. Criminals team up to try and steal Hoyt’s astronomical discovery before the patents come through. Tim, Hoyt’s best friend, joins forces with Hoyt’s wife in an all-out war to find and free Hoyt before his discovery is sold to the highest bidder.


Rick Timber is a reckless young man, but you had to admire his ambition. He was a small-time con-artist living in either high-end hotels or out of his car. He was a loner. Who needs friends when you have split personalities to keep you company? One of Rick’s alter egos, Tim Bricker, was fearless. He had an eye for curvy women and nerves of steel when it came to the short con.

As one of nine children growing up in the 70’s, Rick was surrounded by a cast of characters where controlled chaos was the status quo. He felt that if he didn’t create his own identity, he would get lost in the crowd. Admittedly, he was a bit of a troublemaker and sometimes liked being lost in the crowd, or at least unaccounted for. If he wasn’t scheming a plot to prank a sibling, he was imagining himself as 007 or an Ocean’s Eleven participant. His brothers and sisters say his favorite line is …”just imagine.”


Rick is a born storyteller. Book number five, The Traveler’s Best Seller, reflects his boundless creativity as he introduces historical characters in real-life situations. He takes you on exciting adventures in dreamlike fantasies with intoxicating detail. Rick’s ability to “keep it real” and yet take readers to the edge, has thrilled his cult following.



Can’t remember where I heard this acronym but it stands for Butt In The Chair, Hands On Keyboard. I like to remind myself that writing is a pleasure, not a chore. I always greet my chair as if a good friend. “Hello writing chair. Is this a good time? I have some great ideas that I would like to run past you.” I try to anticipate my needs for the next two hours. Use the […]

Too Much vs. Not Enough

It’s a fine line … How do you know when you write too much versus not enough? Many authors feel the need or obligation to drone on about every detail, with characters that have very little to do with the story. We love when they help us to see, to hear and even to smell the main characters. However, if Mary’s mother’s aunt isn’t a main character, we don’t need to know that she had […]

Character Development

Character Development Today’s blog is about character development. This is one of my favorite topics. Some people can pick up an instrument, and in 30 minutes, they can play it. Others learn a new language as easy as I learn a new card game. Some authors’ strength is developing a great story or a brilliant use of the language. For me, it’s character development. I can see them, I can smell them, I can feel […]
